Romney: 47% of Americans are victims

I guess this maybe the kill shot for his campaign. I know some of you believe you this and won't find a problem with what he said but as a person running for POTUS you probably shouldn't write off 1/2 the country especially in a disparaging way.

Quote:
A hidden camera video of Mitt Romney at a fundraiser shows him talking disparagingly of people who will vote for President Obama.

Said Romney: "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...These are people who pay no income tax."

He adds: "My job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Here's an easy-to-see diagram of the freeloading moochers who pay no federal income tax. They all vote for Obama. Romney willl never "convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." Them fuggin' elderly moochers should get up offa them walkers & go back to work! And what about our fighting men & women over in Afghanistan? They are not only exempt from federal taxes, but they mooch extra for being in a combat zone! Sons a fuggin bitches....

Kill shot?

Maybe the 47% should get pissed off and prove him wrong. You know, STOP expecting free housing, free food, free cars, and the other 53% to foot the bill for everything.

That 6.9% is a crock of shit in Bob Dole's personal experience. Unless you count "pay income tax" as having income tax withheld, then having it all (plus some) handed back when you file you tax return.

Full time students are also in the 47%, damn them to hell. They should get a job and take responsibility. And if investment taxes are not considered federal income taxes (I read differing accounts on that), then there are a lot of millionaires in the 47%, possibly including ol' Mitty himself. Romney is a ****ing moron.

What about the portion of the 47% that worked their entire lives and paid federal income tax and are now retired? What about full time students?

If you were actually able to determine the actual freeloaders, the number would be far less than 47%.

This disaster has lit the blogs on fire with hundreds of thousands of comments on major news sites in less than 12 hours. This is going to be a very long week for the Romney campaign.

The "clinging" remark was in the news cycle for days.

You can confiscate all the wealth in the US, tax everybody 100% of their income, and you can maybe have enough revenue to pay for SSI and Medicare/Medicaid for a year or two.

This is inevitable: We are going to have a meltdown, and short of a miracle, there is no policy the federal government can enact at this point to change that.

My view is this: We know this bird is crashing. It's just a question now of who we want as the pilot. Do we want a Kamikazi pilot, or do we want a Chesley Sullenberger?
SSI is .3% of the federal budget, chief.

"Game Changer" !

The Marxist Media will try to ride this all the way to the election but IMO this will have just the opposite effect and this 'political dart' will not stick either.
